~ Ohne Wein und Liebe ist das Leben trübe ~
This is a modern version of an older stein made by and marked Villeroy & Boch with the Mettlach logo in an attempt to bring back the old art form. Note that the Mettlacher Turm (Mettlach Tower) is featured on the lid. It is also marked "2421/3000" limited edition and dated 1976.
Ohne Wein und Liebe
ist das Leben trübe.
Mettlacher Bierkrug
tut deinem Durst gut.

Beim trinken froh, beim handeln gut,
ein frohes Herz gibt frischen Mut.
Without wine and love,
life is dull.
(A) Mettlach beer
stein does your thisrt good.

With merry drinking, with good behavior,
a merry heart gives fresh courage.
